Rett Madison is an LA based singer/songwriter originally from West Virginia.  After much encouragement from her friends and family, Madison moved to northern Michigan to attend boarding school at Interlochen Arts Academy where she studied songwriting for her junior and senior years.  Upon graduating from Interlochen, Madison relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music.  

Madison’s songs reflect her grapple with identity and upbringing in West Virginia.  Madison’s debut song, “Mother’s Girl,” is about the complex relationships children of addicts have with their parents and substance abuse.  “I come from a family of addicts,” Madison reveals.  “In college, I noticed I was more inclined to drink to numb my social anxiety or if I was feeling melancholy.  One night I drank excessively to cope and I vomited in a friend’s sink and briefly fell asleep on their kitchen floor.”  Madison continues, “My mom always said her struggle with alcoholism didn’t happen overnight. It came from a slow progression of her using alcohol to cope with her problems day after day. The next morning, I wrote “‘Mother’s Girl’” because I got scared when I saw the same patterns she had talked about in myself.”

Madison will be touring through the Spring and Summer with dates to be announced soon.
